Three weeks later isn't THAT bad D;

It is often that I find myself thinking about Western while I walk the campus of Oakland University. From building to building, the walk is shorter and the ground is flatter. The hills are actually hills instead of what seem like mountains and the time it takes is five minutes rather than fifteen. And I will say that while the drive is tedious and the gas is expensive and the parking is a nightmare, I have very few complaints about the university that I now call my own (despite the Western sticker on my car) and where I will (hopefully) spend the remainder of my college career.

But god I'd be lying if I said I didn't miss Western. It seems almost everyday something comes up that reminds me of Shelby or Kirstin or Katie or Liz or any one of my friends at that university. I never planned on leaving Western; I never thought I'd cop out, let alone so soon. My intentions were simple and very straight: I was to go to school at Western. Nowhere else. And since my enrollment at Oakland, it is strange to think that I DID leave. Permanently. I really loved Western. It's unfortunate, the way things turned out.

Not that I have any regrets. This decision I am confidant in. Even though I know virtually no one at Oakland (no one in my classes that is, which is all I have since I don't live in a residence hall anymore) I feel like I belong there, a feeling that I had to search for at Western, and even then it was very weak. So it's working out.

I still feel torn though. Like I'm not doing justice to either place. I need to defend both of my universities, and that's what I'm here to do. I'm not anti-Western; I really loved Western, it just wasn't in the right place and it wasn't the right time. But I love Oakland too. Oakland is for me, fits me better. But oh I miss Western, I really do. I miss those fifth floor girls and it's tough because there's almost nothing I can do about it. No doubt I'll try getting out there to see everyone, hopefully some time soon. But I met some great people, people that will always cause me to feel a twinge of regret about my decision to leave Western.

I miss them, Lizzy, Katie, Shelby, Amber, Kellie, and Kirstin. I have no words to describe it.
